Everybody Wants To Rule the World

Welcome to your life
There’s no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you

Acting on your best behavior
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

super tues

Its my own design
Its my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most
Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

There’s a room where the light wont find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do I’ll be right behind you

So glad we’ve almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can’t stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world
Say that you’ll never never never never need it
One headline why believe it?
Everybody wants to rule the world


All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

What would you do if you ruled the world? If I ruled the world – and seeing how others have failed miserably I see no reason why I shouldn’t - here’s how I would align the stars:

1. Republican Presidential Ticket: Trump–Rubio, in that order. Trump brings the disaffected, who are legion and Rubio brings Florida and maybe some Hispanics and millennials. Texas will most likely go Republican anyway. And pragmatically, I think that ticket can win.

2. Supreme Court: Trump guarantees that if he wins he will immediately appoint Ted Cruz to the Supreme Court – a position that at this point in time is actually more important than who wins the presidency.

Quite simply, if the Democrats win, our Republic is dead; they pack the Supreme Court and there is no way out of the rabbit hole. And if the Republicans win – regardless of who it is – the Republic may still be dead but the wake postponed.

Unless the Republicans take a page from the Lib’s book and manage to pack the Supreme Court with ideological conservatives the country will continue it’s slow dance with progressive socialism. The fate of the nation no longer lies in the hands of the Executive Branch, nor the Legislative Branch. The shadow government is so entrenched, due in no small part to rulings by the Supreme Court, that only the Supreme Court has the wherewithal to reverse the damage. That’s where Cruz comes in: a young, idealistic constitutional conservative like Ted Cruz would have far more leverage to right the ship of state from the vantage of the bench than from the Oval Office.

Because let’s face it, no matter how many times we win the House, the Senate, even the presidency, the entrenched cronyism, bureaucracies, and special interests will continue to drive a progressive, collectivist, agenda that works against liberty. All the R-team can do is play defense and prevent the D-team from running up the score in a fixed game.

In order to change the game, in order for us to “take it back” and ensure the survival of our Republic as conceived by the founders we need to control the Supreme Court. Just as the Left introduced the concept of the Constitution as a “living document” open to their interpretation rather than the founders intent, the Right has to run an ‘activist” Court hell-bent on reestablishing the doctrine of original intent. Despite the Left’s insistence to the contrary, the concept is still quite workable in the modern world.

And if I ruled the world Ted Cruz would serve as Chief Justice surrounded by conservative replacements (or conservatives masquerading as liberals) for Brennan, Ginsberg and Kennedy. And as demonstrated by the Left, once appointed, presidents can come and go but the ideology ensconced in the Supreme Court lives on.

In my world, the Court wouldn’t be afraid to to take up cases that might upset the apple cart; cases such as those challenging the constitutionality of federal departments and agencies. We would enjoy a Court that determines the outcome of cases along constitutional lines rather than political correctness and administrative ease; a Court that won’t be afraid to dismantle entire unconstitutional bureaucracies (Education, Commerce, Energy for starters) that have taken the power out of the hands of Congress (or rather, that Congress has willingly relinquished to them). And we would have a Court willing to overturn precedents that are diametrically opposed to the Constitution such as Affirmative Action, Obamacare, and the entire Administrative Law Process that delegates rule making to bureaucratic agencies rather than the duly elected Congress. We the people do not wish to be ruled by nameless, faceless bureaucrats elected by nobody and accountable to no one.

So as much as I admire Ted Cruz’s conservative chops (who I already voted for in my primary), I find them to be more important in the Judicial Branch than the Executive Office. And that is why, if I ruled the world, he would serve as Supreme Court Justice for another 40 years or so rather than president for 4 or 8. Let Trump take that job and do his best to make America Great Again™ and if we don’t like what he does, we’ll sue and send the case to the Supreme Court.

And that’s what I’d do, if only I could rule the world.
